Money food and sex
BTW (humbly/chastened) nice response to my diatribes, short and sweet.
I enjoy just about all of the psych/spiritual texts for good info w re to our different activites. The library is vast.
Spiritual teachers often remind us how important it is to get the basic situation,the personality driven life, sex, food and money, under control/clear before we attempt deeper and longer swims.
Eating being so elemental it would seem to be freed of certain egoic extraneous aspects, (connections), that similar human activites might have on account of their being less primal and more created. Thus eating could be attributed as I did, I dont remember exactly where that came from, other than basic study.
Food (survival), sex (reproduction) and money(power) being the first three subtle spinal organs (chakras), might reveal how that each one after the former can be progressively, quantitativly, more able/prone to be perverted/modified, depending of course, on our relationship to them in those systems functions.
PS Lama Yeshe ,when he spent time in Italy , would often start comunicating with people about recipes ect and eating and cooking became an avenue for dialogue on awakening with him there. And we cant forget how most all the Hindu teachers are trying to fill us up with food so that wont bother us and we can get down to the real matter.
